May 16, 2016 — POP EVIL today have announced a new batch of select U.S. dates supporting 3 DOORS DOWN with friends in RED SUN RISING opening the night. The trek kicks off on August 26th in Charleston, WV at the Municipal Auditorium and goes through the first week of October ending in Durham, NC at the Durham Performing Arts Center. The dates will be the precursor to POP EVIL supporting 3 DOORS DOWN in Europe in October and November, those dates were announced last week.
POP EVIL return to Europe for the first time since their triumphant appearance on the 2015 Download Festival main-stage and the release of their radio chart-topping and critically acclaimed album Up, of which Classic Rock Magazine said ‘there’s no shortage of boisterous anthems.’ Having grown from strength to strength off the success of Up stateside, their achievements have been recognised and endorsed by Kerrang! Magazine, who said their ‘success is not just inevitable, but deserved.’
Currently, the band is out with ROB ZOMBIE and DISTURBED on a month long trek with a highlighted stop at ROCK ON THE RANGE this weekend. POP EVIL also just launched a new virtual reality video for their hit single “Take it All,” making the band one of the first rock acts to do so. Watch the 3D trailer below.
The 3D video is being offered in part of a new bundle package the band will release on May 27th. The “kit” comes with everything you need to experience a Pop Evil concert like never before. You’ll receive a customized Pop Evil VR Google Cardboard headset, an exclusive tour T-shirt and a collectable copy of the UP album, autographed in gold by every member of the band, exclusive guitar picks and a 18 x 24 Lithograph Poster.

POP EVIL released UP last summer and saw the release land at #1 on the Billboard Indie Chart in the week of its release. The LP pulled in at #25 Billboard Top 200, #16 Overall and #3 Top Hard Music albums.
UP was released with some serious critical accolades. Blabbermouth called it “an album that will rock the socks (and other clothes, no doubt) off their fans.” Huffington Post said the new LP “finds the Michigan band is in fine form.” News powerhouse USA Today even recognized that Pop Evil have“become a familiar presence on rock radio” in a recent feature with vocalist Leigh Kakaty. POP EVILreleased a flurry of tracks off their LP before its release. “Footsteps” led the charge with “In Disarray,” “Dead In The Water” and “Ghost Of Muskegon” right behind it.
“The strongest Pop Evil album to date.” – REVOLVER MAGAZINE
“UP is Pop Evil’s most ambitious album so far. It has that mainstream appeal while allowing them to push their musical boundaries a bit. It’s a satisfying album which sports a title that reflects the band’s current career trajectory.” LOUDWIRE
